Analyst(s): Barbara A. Kelly, Robert W. McCombe


The Pharmacy Information System is one of the integrated clinical modules in MEDITECH's Health Care Information System (HCIS). It can also be used as a stand-alone system in inpatient and outpatient settings. The client/server version of the system, available since 1996, still relies on MEDITECH's proprietary MAGIC architecture and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
